"In the Pink" Cheesecake Pops
















Cheesecake, pink chocolate, and sprinkles that shimmer... Yup, I'm all set!  Cheesecake pops are so much fun, and they have party written all over them.  I don't know what it is about miniature desserts, but I just love them.  These pops are great for a party and people go crazy over them.  The flavor combinations are endless, and this season I've been doing my "in the pink" pops.
I used my raspberry swirl cheesecake, dipped them in pink chocolate, and covered them in the prettiest rainbow sprinkles.  They just seem to fit all the occasions happening lately from Mother's Day, to graduations, to showers.  I've been making them a lot recently as favors for showers, and presented in a pretty vase or mug, they make fabulous gifts.



Cheesecake pops are also great when you need a fabulous dessert in a pinch.  If you don't happen to have a cheesecake on hand, and you don't have the time to whip one up, you could use a store bought one.  Don't worry I won't tell ;)  Once you zhush the pops up with chocolate and different toppings they will be dressed to impress, and your guests will think you are a rockstar!

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE sprinkles ?!































Pops

  • chilled cheesecake- I used my Raspberry Cheesecake
  • lollipop sticks
  • pink candy melts
  • jewel sparkle sprinkles
  1. Scoop chilled cheesecake with small ice cream scoop.
  2. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to firm up.
  3. Shape each scoop of cheesecake and insert lollipop stick.
  4. Freeze for 1 hour.
  5. Melt candy melts in microwave.
  6. Dip each pop, letting the excess chocolate drip off.
  7. Immediately cover with sprinkles.
  8. Refrigerate till ready to serve.

  10. I fell in love with these cake pops ever since I saw them - they are so cute! My version had the scone cake held together with cream (it also tasted a little like cheesecake), but using pure cheesecake is such a genious idea, because you don't need to crumble the cake, mix with the icing and all that. Yours look wonderful. LOVE them :-)

  11. These are the most adorable little pops. Love the pretty little sprinkles on top. This would be the ultimate birthday dessert for kids' party!

    BTW-Thank you for the tri-color cookies. My daughter received them, and they love it. I did not get to see it or taste it yet, have not had a chance to stop by...sigh

  12. Well, heck, who doesn't love sprinkles!? Especially when they're the cute holiday or seaonally themed one - I'm a total sucker for those! It's a really good thing they don't take up more room because I have more jars of sprinkles than I do spices... Have you been to this website yet? http://www.sweetbakingsupply.com/ Crazy sprinkles galore!
